Jacob Bischoff and Maria Jensen – Dusty Roads

Jesus walked upon the water,
they had faith to sail the sea.
Jesus walked the dusty roads,
they did the same for me.
Their legacy of love,
for Christ lives on in what I do.
With faith in Christ
like they, I’ll see my own trail through.

Dusty roads walked the elders,
found a Denmark family
who would hear
what they had to say.
Maria, Jacob embraced their message,
the truth restored anew,
with four children
from their land bid adieu.

On the dusty roads near Omaha,
their trail became sore,
all four children died of measles,
this journey there no more.
Broken hearted they buried,
with no shoes on their feet,
their precious children trusting Jesus
their feet he would keep.

Dusty roads they walked to Zion,
with steadfast faith in Christ,
Knowing one day with their children
who had passed.
Maria knit four pairs of stockings
in their home in Fountain Green.
She was buried with these booties
with her children as foreseen.

Jesus walked upon the water,
they had faith to sail the sea.
Jesus walked the dusty roads,
they did the same for me.
Their legacy of love
for Christ lives on in what I do.
With faith in Christ
like they, I’ll see my own trail through.

Armed with power in great glory
humble saints lived quietly,
Trusting God in all they did,
they lived for you and me.
Now with feet planted forward
on our own dusty trail,
we face our future with faith
that all is well!
